BD operatives prowling T5

Had to giggle when I saw this - BD staff in full dress uniform + hats in T5... They must be gloating that for the time being they are the UK's only domestic airline.

Asia Miles Call Centre

Does anyone have any further insight into what the problem is with the telephone numbers for Asia Miles? Is it a question of ringing-up during specific hours? Does the customer service email...

Only an hour??? IMHO that is totally unacceptable. I don't know anyone that has the time or inclination to wait that long on hold. Personally I ended up just buying the ticket I needed. Even now,...

If they have their mind set on a 757, I wonder why they wouldn't simply convince UA to part with one of their P.S. (Premium Service) 757s? Thay easily have the range, and the F cabin (with lie-flat...

I would take the Perrier-Jouët Belle Epoque (vintage prestige cuvée) over Krug Grand Cuvée (non-vintage entry-level blend) any day. It's hardly a 'downgrade'! It is a better wine and, incidentally,...
